Say nothing + Do nothing = Be nothing.
Love is the law of God. You live that you may learn to love. You love that you may learn to live. No other lesson is required of man.
“If you want something you have never had, you have to do something you have never done.” Mike Murdock
“As long as you keep on doing what you’ve been doing then you are going to keep on getting what you’ve been getting. If you don’t like what you’ve been getting then you’ve got to change what you’ve been doing.” Zig Ziglar
What you think about, talk about, and do something about is what comes about.
Knowledge is not power. It is the implementation of knowledge that is power.
Of all the beautiful traditions of Christmas, few are so ancient in meaning and rich in symbolism as the simple candy cane:
Its shape is the crook of the Shepherd
One of the first who came;
The lively peppermint flavor is the regal gift of spice,
The white is Jesus’ purity, the red His sacrifice;
The narrow stripes are friendship and the nearness of His love
Eternal sweet compassion, a gift from God above;
The candy cane reminds us all of just how much God cared
And like His Christmas gift to us, it’s meant to be broken and shared.
According to legend Satan and his demons were having a Christmas party. As the demonic guests were departing, one grinned and said to Satan, “Merry Christmas, your majesty.” At that, Satan replied with a growl, “Yes, keep it merry. If they ever get serious about it, we’ll all be in trouble.”
Well, get serious about it. It is the birth of the Baby. It is the coming of God. It is the intervention of God’s presence among men.
“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Neale Donald Walsch
Few people will turn to themselves to take responsibility for their results until they have exhausted all opportunities to blame someone else.
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when through no fault of yours, something goes wrong,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,
If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,
If you can face the world without lies and deceit,
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
If you can honestly say that deep in your heart that you have no prejudice against creed or color,
THEN you have reached the same level of development as your dog.
Do not listen to anyone put you down for any reason at any time.
Do not listen to office gossip.
Do not listen to people who talk bad about other people.
Do not listen to someone tell you how to be successful when they are not.
